This spectacular Cairns City holiday house is absolutely amazing! If you are looking for the holiday of a lifetime, you have found your accommodation right here. Named 'Wanggulay Too Treetops', this is a four bedroom holiday house located just 7 kilometres west of Cairns airport and set amongst the treetops of a rainforest.
Our Asian inspired interior opens onto a large timber balcony with breathtaking views of the world heritage listed rainforest, which boasts tropical birds, kookaburras, Ulysses butterflies and the gently flowing Barron River below.
Included in your rate is our free E-Book, detailing the best things to see and do as experienced by our guests over the last 10 years.
Sitting on the hillside above the river, this luxurious Cairns City holiday home is filled with exotic oriental Balinese furniture, day bed on the balcony, polished hardwoods, elegant fabrics, handsome statues and lush tropical plants.
Your Cairns City accommodation, with its earth-colours and textures, features an inviting ambience into the main living area under a large timber cathedral ceiling. The spacious open-plan living area extends outside to a wide veranda high above the forest floor in the treetops. Bi-fold doors slide back, allowing the large outdoor area to become part of the living room. On hot days, with the doors closed, the integrated air-conditioning keeps this Cairns City holiday house cool. On the floor below is a smaller living area with a lounge, large screen television and veranda fully screened for the ultimate tropical living experience.
The master bedroom looks out through the dappled sunlight of the treetops with the river down below. Fine linen, polished timber floors - the attention to detail, decorative soaps in a Balinese tray, fragrant frangipanis floating in a bowl and a luxurious ensuite bathroom with a spa-bath all point to first class accommodation!
My name is Belinda. After building Wanggulay in 2003 we decided to completely upgrade our nearby home to Wanggulay standard and and now we are about to launch WanggulayToo Treetops. I have lived overseas for many years and Wanggulay is our spectacular home in Australia. I am a Nutritionist and lifestyle consultant and love food. I recently wrote the Cairns and Wanggulay Guide which contains a comprehensive food section detailing my favourite markets,restaurants and cafes. I have two daughters and they wrote the kids section in the Wanggulay guide too. The eBook copy of the guide is yours when you make an enquiry. I would love to show you our home, perhaps you have already seen its neighbour Wanggulay on Australian Lifestyle television or Queensland Weekender.
We have lived all over Australia (19 locations) and overseas ( 4 countries) but the lure of the tropics and the rainforest outside Cirs was too great. We feel that nothing can compete with the natural beauty and experiences on offer in this unique pocket on our planet. We loved to travel and we have collected a lot of wonderful pieces that now have found their home in Wanggulay Too. Come meet Aladin our lamp from Asia, our marriage dolls, all four of them from Bali. We have interesting Art work form famous Australian artists and very pieces collected form markets around the world. All compliment the tropical environment of Cairns.
